I will miss you Uncle Neil

I have debated on what I wanted to say all weekend about my Uncle Neil, alot of my family members have posted little tid bits here and there on facebook and stuff but I just wanted to take a little minute and just dedicate this post to my Uncle Neil.
Thanksgiving seemed to be going like a pretty normal Thanksgiving at the Lang home. My dad and I worked on our pies the night before, like we always do and fixing up all the awesome food that we would be cooking up in the morning. We put the appetizer foods out on the table around 11am. and the wassel starts warming in the crock pot filling the house with its wonderful aroma. Because my dad had to go to work that night, our Thanksgiving dinner was eaten around 3pm. and we just vegged out the rest of the night. Seemed to be going like any normal night. Up until 9:30pm that is. My mom got a phone call from her sister that lives in Utah saying that my Uncle had passed out in his hotel room and they could revive him. They were taking him to the hospital in Sandy and she would call back with and date. My uncle was in Salt Lake at the time on business with 2 of his kids. Within 15 minutes of the phone call, the next one came letting us know that he was gone. You never can prepare yourself for those kinds of moments in life. It really makes you look back at your own life and just be thankful for the moments you have.
My uncle ended up having a massive heart attack and left this earth at the age of 45. He leaves behind a wife and 6 kids and 7 grand kids. It was only a few weeks ago that we had gotten together to bless two of the grand kids.
My uncle was a awesome man and so full of love for everyone and anyone that he came into contact with. I will miss seeing is big beaming smile when he walks in a room. Thank you Uncle Neil for all the wonderful memories and for being an example in my life. I know that we will be together again. I love you. and We will miss you.

My beautiful work...

So I just had to put these in a post.
Last weekend while I was in Malad/Pocatello, I took some family pictures for my sister and her husbands siblings families! Well needless to say while I was editing the pictures tonight I was just so proud of a couple of the ones I did so I have deemed the post worthy! This awesome picture is my beautiful sister and her hubby and the sweet baby bump is my nephew!

This one is my sister's niece Shayla! It was just too sweet not show off!
And this I just thought was fun! These awesome kiddos are mine and my niece and nephews!

My Pretty Purple Princess....

So I thought this deserved a post of it's own! I keep forgetting to post them so here it is! The last time I went into Costco my sister and I had to check out the cute holiday dresses they had start putting out. I was excited because I knew that Traci could actually/FINALLY wear one! They smallest size they make the dresses are 2T and I was just excited cause I knew Traci could fit into them. Anyway...We were looking at them and came across the all purple one! Traci's favorite color is...purple...and once she saw it she was like "oww purple!" So I just had to get it right!!
That sunday what dress did she want to wear....her pretty purple one! So I decked her out with a matching purple flower that went perfect! I also planned a head and put sponge rollers in her hair the night before so she had curly hear too!! She was just dang cute and she new it!!!

Happy Halloween

I thought that I should put up some cute pictures of my kiddos from Halloween. Neilsen was so excited to be Bumble Bee this year that he wanted to wear his costume everyday. I took the kids to our Trunk-r-Treat at the church and what was funny, Neilsen was waiting to go walk around and was just enjoying looking at all the different costumes. Well next thing we see was a little boy wearing a Mega Tron costume. When I told him to look at it, Neilsen took this defensive stances, turned and said, "MEGATRON! Where!!" It was too funny! I am sure that if that kid would have walked by us he would of tried to take him down!!

Traci of course enjoyed being dolled up as Dorthy! She also enjoyed the red lipstick I let her wear. And then I had my little Lion with me helping pass out Candy.

All in all Halloween was fun this year. Enjoy the cute photos of them too!
